Realme GT Neo 3T review: a mid-range marathon runner

The company chose a triple rear photo module including a 64-megapixel wide-angle module (f / 1.8 optics), ultra-wide-angle (8 megapixels, f / 2.3) and a 2 MP macro module (f / 2.4).

The GT Neo 3T features a configuration similar to that of the Oppo Find X5 Lite. Good for comparison.

Wide-angle module: 16 Mpx, f/1.8, eq. 25mm

Realme uses the technique of pixel binding, which consists of grouping four photosites into one to get more light. Typically, the smartphone takes snapshots at 16 megapixels, but it’s possible to take advantage of its full definition at 64 megapixels to get theoretically more detailed images.

The main module provides good translation. The level of detail is higher (see the two faces in our photo) and overall sharper. We’ve seen it particularly in scenes, which aren’t “bleeding”, unlike the Oppo Find X5 Lite. This is primarily due to a larger difference. Neither showed the best colorimetry. Realme adopts a warmer color that translates to the look of a small yellow curtain that softens the colors.

At night, we prefer to compete with it. Digital smoothing has lost a lot of detail in both cases, but the GT Neo 3T still struggles. The Find X5 Lite manages to compare better despite its low exposure. Book signs are thus easier to read despite an obvious noise.

64 megapixel mode

It is possible to force the full definition in the settings. We allocated an area of ​​equal size (0.90 Mpx) to each of the shots. You can see the difference in meaning.



64MP Night mode


64MP Day Mode

During the day, there was little improvement in detail and little interpretation. This is not the case with night photography. So it’s possible to easily crop your photo, but interest seems limited.

Ultra wide angle module: 8 Mpx, f/2.3, 119˚, eq. 16mm

Mid-range ultra-wide-angle modules are never convincing. Not surprisingly, that on the Realme GT Neo 3T doesn’t shine in the workout.

During the day, the Realme GT Neo 3T delivers an overexposed rendering. Managing the dynamics is risky and the light is likely to lose many details. The snapshot on the Find X5 Lite, which is more varied, seems even more readable (with nothing really convincing).

In the dark, the two sensors can no longer follow. We always recognize a lot of Oppo items, but the photo doesn’t apply in both cases.

front and video module

A 16 Mpx sensor whose lens opens at f / 2.5 is located on the front. Selfies are of good quality when there is light, even if there are some difficulties with high exposures. At night, the level of detail and sharpness will inevitably drop, and make the exercise more complicated.

The device is capable of filming 4K at 30 fps. High level of detail and good dynamics management. The colors seem a little less vibrant than they really are and overall lack a little contrast. However, it is possible to capture beautiful video moments, especially thanks to the “ultra stability” mode (in Full HD only).
